Acclaimed Ottawa architect Christopher Simmonds had a hand in the design of the home and its layout.
“I felt that it was representative of how a family might use the home,” Simmonds says of the concept he passed along.
Interior designer Tanya Collins has given the home a unified, contemporary look using a palette of black, white and gold, with splashes of bold colour to enliven some of the spaces. Custom cabinetry and built ins as well as top quality fixtures and lighting add to the richness of the spaces.
The Collins and Simmonds collaboration on this home was perfect harmony are known for a contemporary influence, .Featuring clean lines and simplicity with a touch of elegance the colours chosen emphasizes the glamour while bringing a timeless look.
“I wanted something kind of glamorous, but livable at the same time,” says Collins. “The luxury of the finishes, lounge-y seating so it invites you to come in and sit down, something stylish and not typical.”
